Back from NYC

We are back from our whirlwind East coast urban tour and back in the woods with a coating of snow.  Here are some of my favorite pictures while we were in NYC.  We spent lots of time at museums and at parks: the Natural History and Children's Museum, of course, but this year we also made it to MoMA and the Intrepid.  And the kids' favorite tradition of riding the Ferris wheel at the Times Square Toys-R-Us.

View of lower Manhattan from the Staten Island Ferry

Tristan's favorite at the Natural History Museum - TREX!

The fancy hotel at the corner of Central Park by FAO Schwartz and the Mac store - the Plaza, I think?

The 4 of us on the Toys R Us ferris wheel

Art at MoMA (don't remember the artist but I love the light and character)

 The pace of city life...

Van Gogh at MoMA - could have spent hours looking at that

Matt & the kids at the "Bessie" statue in the Bronx zoo.  No crowds in November!  We spent the whole day there with lots of our students.  That was one of the best days of the trip.  Just hanging out with our students in the city talking about nature, animals, life, and learning.

Gotta have Heinz ketchup even if you are living on an aircraft carrier in the middle of the ocean sleeping in a bunk room with 30 other men and being attacked by Kamikazes...Go Steelers!

The Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum.  Fun, educational, and expensive.

Well, don't those faces just sum it all up!  Thanks NYC for another great visit.
